Winter Garden Harvest Festival - Vendor Application 

To our vendors,

We are pleased to be presenting our second annual Winter Garden Harvest Festival on May 4, 2013.  This day-long event focuses on connecting the grass-roots with the deep-roots of our local food-shed by giving our local farmers, urban gardeners, hand-made crafters, food vendors, entrepreneurs and non-profits a venue to showcase the valuable products and services they provide to our community.

The stage is set, the community is abuzz with anticipation and those of us who have been at the plow preparing the soil for this festival are eager to show off our vendors to the citizens of Winter Garden and Central Florida. 

This event is still new to the city of Winter Garden and we want you to be involved.   This is YOUR event.

"Without community support of our creative entrepreneurs, our unique dinning establishments and our small growers we resign ourselves to the increasing homogenization of our culture and food supply."

The average citizen of Winter Garden may not realize that the tomato they picked up from the local grocery-store is often a cheap imitation from out of state, but once they taste the locally grown heirloom varieties cooked up by our local chefs they'll never settle for a gas ripened knock-off again.  The same can be said for people's department store purchases. Once a festival-goer realizes the creative bounty that exists in our local artisans they'll never settle for wearing anything other than a locally crafted, one of a kind original.

This is the whole point of creating this Harvest Festival: To raise awareness about the incredible variety and flavors that our local farms, crafters and restaurateurs produce year after year.

The festival is seeking vendors that highlight local food and craftsmanship.  For an in-depth look at our vendor requirements, please read through the vendor Conditions of Agreement.
